Our school in Lima
The thriving, cosmopolitan district of Miraflores is the location for our Spanish language school in Lima, just a short walk away from fantastic beaches. In Miraflores you’ll find the spectacular Huaca Pucllana pyramid, built and abandoned long before either the Incas or the Spanish arrived here. In the modern school building are eight classrooms, a café and Wi-Fi Internet access. The patio area is the perfect place to unwind and get to know students from around the world!
Your Spanish course in Lima will have a maximum class size of just eight students, regardless of which course you take. This allows our school’s experienced, native teachers to give you very customised tuition, helping you to learn as quickly as possible! Every course is open to all levels, from beginner to advanced.

Special courses in Lima
- Host Family
- Shared Apartment
A great way to experience the Peruvian culture and the friendliness of the Limeños is to stay with a host family. Enjoy breakfast and dinner with your family, and get plenty of Spanish practice! All families are carefully chosen by our school, ensuring that you are placed with the most compatible host family. Choose a single or a double room.
You might prefer to prepare your own meals, though. Live in one of our school’s shared apartments, and you’ll share a kitchen with other language students from the school. This is the perfect arrangement if socialising with other students is important to you. Have a private room or share a bedroom with a student of the same gender.
We want you to have an unforgettable time whilst you learn Spanish in Lima! So our school runs a packed activities programme for your free time. Join activities like trips into the rain forest, Peruvian cookery lessons, guided tours of Lima, horse-riding, cycling tours, trakking in the Lomas de Lucumo nature reserve and nights out in the city. Surfing weekends to Cerro Azul, Playa Waikiki, Punta Rocas and San Bartolo are also organised by the school.

Student reviews & feedback
The course was great and I came away with an amazingly good grasp of spanish that will be invaluable as I plan to stay on here a few months longer.
The family I stayed with couldnt have been nicer to me, They included me as a member of their family when I was there and I believe I have made a good friend in Ana, who is the lady of the house, I have already been back to visit and am invited for their new year celebrations!
I was at the school for four full weeks and never felt that there was a wasted moment during that time. The teaching staff are incredibly kind and knowledgeable. The classes are a mixed group of learners of different abilities and backgrounds yet everyone is able to participate fully.
The school was great, staff and teachers were friendly and professional. My accommodation was very near the school it was good.

The first week was fabulous as I was the only one in the class and the teacher was very good so was able to go at my own pace. I learned a lot and had a really good time in Lima.

Student stories on our blog
My two months in Lima….Thinking back on my two months in Lima, I’m having a difficult time classifying my time here, and I think that says a lot in itself about the Peru that I’ve gotten to know! There’s so much diversity here that you can’t place much in categories, generalize and get away with it – there’s far too much here for that. From the three climate zones – la costa (the coast), la sierra (the mountains), and la selva (the rainforest) – to the people that inhabit those regions, to the obviously vast differences in the socio-economic makeup of the country; there is just too much variety to say any one thing about Peru. That variety provides students with great opportunities to see some amazing places. Being situated in Lima, you are in the perfect place to travel throughout the country. As one-third of the Peruvian population lives in Lima, everything runs through the city. You can take flights to take weeklong tours of the jungle or to spend time hiking up to Machu Picchu or take a bus for a weekend to the Nazca Lines or to a northern beach town. And with the school, you can adjust your schedule around these trips. Take a week off to travel and come back for more time improving you comprehension. Read more...
